Microsoft had a hard time with its updates recently. Yet, the company pledges to roll them anyway and assures users a definite excitement this time. Windows 10’s new update will contain massive changes with respect to Reserved Storage, Smart Driver Updates and a completely refreshed look. Microsoft hopes these improvements may wash the infamous credits that Windows 10 gained in recent days.
Smart Driver Updates
Amidst major OS problems, driver updates aren’t considered that serious. But Microsoft didn’t let it go, as the firm is making a smart move on cleverly sending driver updates to PCs. It’s revealed by Microsoft that it will target specific PCs by HWID/CHID combinations initially, which are highly active. And sending driver updates to these machines would give the firm an estimate of the total device population.
This would enable Microsoft to assure the quality of updates, as those active PCs would garner more diagnostic data if any troubles occur, thus fixing them and rolling stable updates to rest PCs in the community. This is definitely a smart move, as termed better than rolling out to randomly selected PCs or broad range at once.
The new system update will present the Live Tiles, app icons, color palettes, etc in new designs and colors. This change is made under the firm’s Fluent Design project and is expected to be plausible. This could be the major design upgrade for Windows 10 for past 5 years.
Reserved Storage Space
A space of around 10GB is reserved by OS for temporary files and virtual memory, just to make them safe for deletion and quick accessing. This space can be retrieved and utilized by the user if he wanted, as this privilege was previously taken off by Microsoft in May 2019 update.
To check the status of space, you can get to a command prompt by typing cmd in Start Menu, and typing as DISM.exe /Online /Get-ReservedStorageState. And if you wanted to disable this option for claiming your space back, type DISM.exe /Online /Set-ReservedStorageState /State:Disabled. But we recommend giving the space system needed for better usage, so if you aren’t using it anyway, enable it as DISM.exe /Online /Set-ReservedStorageState /State:Enabled.
We’ve seen Windows 10 updates as monthly patches are having vulnerabilities, that caused systems to crash, missing files and boot problems. We’ve already listed a few solutions for diagnosing these flawed updates as KB4532693 and KB4535996 in case you’re affected.
